Jbaakko,

I have always liked Rio Grande tunnel motors aka SD40T-2s.
The GN is a brass Tenshodo 2-10-2. Look for it on Ebay soon.

kjd, since you won a second time, you can come up with another description!!

EASTONJ & HYRAIL5, you both won ''free lanced paint scheme, any type of equipment'', so you both get to choose a description!!!! :D

SInce MRL was won, here is my new description: Any equipment used on the Great Northern era OR Amtrak era Empire Builder route
 
Man, I'm automatically disqualified.
It takes me a couple months to get a rool of film used up, and a week to get it developed. Maybe I should go digital? After all, I calculated that even though I don't work, I have spent over $5000 on trains since I got my first good locomotive in 2001. And I'm an unemplyed student that gets money by mowing the lawn! Wow, I get off topic fast!

* You have to find and post a picture of the described locomotive, passenger car, or freight car.
* The picture must be of a model railroad, not the prototype.
* The picture has to be yours, not someone else's or one you found on the internet; in other words, it has to be taken by you
* the winner is the first one to post a picture of the locomotive ( or sometimes it may be a passenger car or a freight car).
* Once someone posts the winning picture, I will post a new desciption for everyone to find a picture of & so on

No scales requred here ;)
 
Neat, my RS-11 on the RRrr duely recorded after an operating session taken by me. :) This has been fun and thanks for letting me participate.

Greg, since you won southern pacific locomotive, you get to make up another description!

please post your decision whenever you feel like it! :D

P.S. jbaakko is right, there is no scale requirement, the only scale requirement is that it be of a model r.r., not a prototype :D

Just thought that I would show you guys some of the pics I could have used as entries on some of the descriptions.

1. my SD45 (Since I'm the contest organizer, any pics I post don't count as winning, so Wisconsin Central SD45 + this is a MRL unit, so it doesn't count any ways.)

2 & 3.Empire builder equipment( remember these pics don't count)

4. my GN steam engine
